  • Went counter clockwise for this loop and went to lake ann which added an easy extra two miles to this loop. Slightly under 8 miles. Views for days! Amazing. Highly recommend
  • This is one of the grandest scenes in the North Cascades that is not difficult to get to. Make a loop out of it by first going to Ann Lake, then Heather Pass to see massive Black Peak, then up to the incomparable views of Maple Pass. Head over to Frisco Mtn and come down a steeper trail with other views including Rainy Lake. Because access is so easy it gets popular on summer weekends. But the higher you go, the fewer the people.
